  • As of December 31, 2018 the The Philippines Statistics Authority declared that there are 17 Regions, 81 Provinces, 145 Cities, 1,489 Municipalities and 42,046 Barangays. The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. It is the smallest government unit in the Philippines. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters.
  • The barangay is divided into Puroks (English: District), also known as zone. It is a political subdivision of a barangay. It is the smallest unit of governance in the Philippines led by a barangay councilor appointed to lead the purok. The purok is not considered as a local government unit.
    • It is unfortunate that the Dept of Tourism(DOT) and other governmental agencies do not promote the name of the barangay. Only the name of the municipality/city or province is mentioned.
    • Even most business do not put the name of the barangay on their webpages, business cards, business letters and banners. What they seem to forget is the fact that they can't get or renew a business license without first getting a barangay clearance. Yes even companies like PLDT, BPI, SMmall or PAL. Now that is a shame.
    • Even the president of the Philippines intentionally or unintentionally ignores the barangay. The Malacañang palace is located within a barangay. The barangay of Barangay 643, San Miguel, Manila. But the official address of Malacañang does not mention the name of Barangay 643, it only shows this:

Current Address shows:

  • 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, San Miguel
  • Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

The address should be this:

  • 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, Barangay 643, San Miguel
  • Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
  • In 2009 the official webpages of municipalities and cities do not have the barangay name in their addresses. We have been sending them emails asking them to include the barangay name in the address. Because of this there are now more and more cities and municipalities actually using the barangay name. However, there are still those hardheaded mayors who simply ignore the barangay where their cityhall or muncipality hall is located in.
  • Help update the webpage of the barangay you grew up in. Send your updates via email to: franklin_maletsky@yahoo.com or Via Facebook by posting your updates or pictures to the OBI Facebook Page
  • No to Federalism. Instead have a senatorial representation for each region of the Philippines. The biggest complaints of the pro-federalism people is the "supposedly unequal budget distribution" and that the budget system is centralized. This is so untrue.

As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH! The barnagays need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain. Since 1991 the budget system has been DECENTRALIZED. Wake up barangays!

A new anti-dynasty Republic Act 10742 for the SK has been passed last January 15, 2016. This is the anti-dynasty law for SKs. Candidates "must not be related within the second civil degree of consanguinity or affinity to any incumbent elected national official or to any incumbent elected regional, provincial, city, municipal, or barangay official, in the locality where he or she seeks to be elected, and must not have been convicted by final judgment of any crime involving moral turpitude."

Last March 21, 2018 senate bill 1765 (Anti-Dynasty law) was presented to President Duterte for approval. So far the president is ignoring this bill. If he signed it on time the 2019 election year will be void of relatives running within the same LGU. So this is a wait and see as to why president Duterte refuses to sign the anti-dynasty bill. ---

Since 1997 Zamboanga.com has been trying to convince all the municipalities, cities and provinces to mention the name of the barangay where the municipality hall, city hall and provincial capitol is located in. We even wrote letters to the president requesting that the Malacañang palace shows the name of the barangay where it is in. Zamboanga.com is about the barangays of the Philippines.
